Warbringer Records Debut Album

The buzz surrounding LA thrashers Warbringer is simply astounding following a slew of high-profile shows alongside the legendary Exodus and overwhelmingly positive reactions to the group's self-released EP. Upon signing a worldwide deal with Century Media Records, the quintet entered the studio with acclaimed producer Bill Metoyer, who helped shape legendary albums from the likes of Slayer, D.R.I. and Sacred Reich, among a slew of others.

John Kevill (vocals) states: "So far the recording's gone very well. Everything is now tracked, and mixing is currently in full swing. Everyone's pretty happy with how it's shaping up, and we all feel it's a huge step up for us. Working with Bill has been awesome. It's been very laid back, and we've received a lot of good feedback and input from him. Counting bonus material and everything, we did a total of 14 tracks. The cover art is also looking pretty bad-ass. The whole thing will be done in a couple of weeks, and we can't wait to unleash it upon the masses."

While Warbringer has built a rabid local fan base playing with others in the LA thrash revival scene, they're set to join Exodus, Arsis and Goatwhore on a national tour in January. This tour will be preceded by a number of warm-up dates opening for Suffocation/Immolation and Prong throughout the CA area this month. Having already completed a West Coast tour with Daath, in addition to the several shows with Exodus, these young thrash warriors (4 out of the 5 aren't even of legal drinking age) are prepared to bring their definitive brand of violent combat thrash to audiences nationwide.

Wow, a modern day band calling themselves thrash who are actually... thrash. Listening to them reminds me why thrash bands are so awesome live. Yeah vocals could do with a tweak.

Now Playing - Warbringer - "Total War"
